It is a daily intensive, fundamental and persistent work that requires high professionalism and true devotion to the Fatherland and the native people. That is why issues faced by the system are constantly at the spotlight of the authorities, which do their best for the improvement of your working and social conditions.
I congratulate all of you once again on the Day of the National Security Service Servicemen and wish peace, robust health, happiness and all the best to you and your families."
